On the other hand, you became a fan in 1976- immediately following a Steelers superbowl victory.
Is this some allusion to me being a "bandwagon" fan? Even though I stuck with the team through the suckfest known as the 1980s? Trust me, if you started following this team in 1994, you haven't really seen a truly "bad" Steelers team yet. I'm talking Mark Malone at QB, Walter Abercrombie at RB and Weegie Thompson and Calvin Sweeney at wideout bad. In other words, time-to-burn-the-whole-thing-down-to-the-ground-and-start-over-from-scratch bad. This team hasn't been in those kinds of straits since well before 1994, believe me.
